Nicely done, that car looks great! I'm an autobody tech and I've repainted a few of my own vehicles over the years so I know what all is involved in a complete color change.

Most people don't understand how many hours it takes or even how much quality paint products cost. A paint job like this can cost between $5500-$6500 or more depending on how much body work is needed.

Two questions kcpaz - Did you finally finish wiring up the airbag and cruise control? Do they work?

The answer to both is yes... in theory but I'm waiting on a new clock spring so I can test the cruise and the horn. Some time between the time that the column was out and the rack was swapped, the clock spring rotated too much and the first time I made a sharp turn, I think it broke the ribbon inside. I'll know for sure that everything is wired right when the new clock spring arrives, but the wiring was pretty straight forward.

I've read your thread a few times now, excellent work sir. I'll be using your guidelines if my 2.5 ever gives up the ghost.

kcpaz,

This is a sweet restoration. I am curious what did you use for the suspension knuckles and underbody parts? Did you just take the rust off of them and paint them or did you use something like POR 15?

Also for the STi steering wheel would you have been able to use the legacy clockspring if the ribbon hadn't ripped? I know the newer STi's have dual stage airbags, did this require any wiring or is it simply in the airbag ECU that does the staging? I'm looking to do a steering wheel swap and wanted to know what to anticipate.

Thanks! Great job, whoever got the car got a great deal.

Ben
